Banners for You Gift Card Holder

June 19, 2016 No Comments

Yesterday afternoon my daughter and I attended a graduation party for one of the girls she had danced with for years.  Shirley, the mom, has created the back yard that I would love to have!  She has packed the small yard with several different blooming areas meant to attract a variety of birds and butterflies.  It’s just beautiful!  …..and relaxing.  Anyway, since it was a graduation party we needed a gift.  With the different rules on what kids can bring with them to college, I’ve decided to give mostly gift cards this year and am enjoying creating the packaging.

I’m loving the Bunch of Banners framelits!  They were the starting point for the holder I created for yesterday’s gift card.

Banners for You Gift Card Holder - from theartfulinker.com

I went with a Melon Mambo and Basic Black color scheme.

Using the Gift Card Envelope and Trims Thinlits, I cut the holder from a 6″ x 8-1/2″ piece of Melon Mambo cardstock.

Next, I used the third largest die from Lots of Labels to cut a piece of Basic Black cardstock.

After rounding the corners and adding a piece of Pop of Pink washi to the bottom, the  2-1/8″ x 2-1/4″ piece of Pop of Pink designer paper was adhered to the center of the Lots of Labels die cut.  The die cut was then adhered to the front of the gift card holder.

Melon Mambo Thick Bakers Twine was wrapped around the holder twice and tied in a bow at the top of the holder.

Then I stamped the double banner, from Banners for You, in Basic Black onto a piece of Whisper White.

After cutting the banner with a framelit from Bunch of Banners, I laid the words I wanted to use onto the blank banner and picked them up with an acrylic block.  This way, the spacing was correct for stamping the words onto the banner.  Since the stamps are photopolymer, I was able to gently shape “friend” so that it fit the curve of the bottom banner.  The words were inked in Melon Mambo.

Finally, the banner was attached using Dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out today’s Gift Card holder.

Now, I’m off to make some Father’s Day cinnamon rolls.
